Artistic Director Temujin Gill
Temujin is resident artist at Greenwich Dance, an ex-Jiving Lindy Hopper, founder of Temujin Dance and now Artistic Director of Grounded Movement. Through his work Temujin has been committed to bringing dance to all sectors of the community working with professional performers, educators, the young and inexperienced of all ages. Testament to this committment and his ability came with the amazing honor he received when asked to be on Danny Boyle’s award winning London 2012 Creative Team to choreograph the NHS section of the Olympics Opening Ceremony.
Other credits include: working with Fin Walker and Daniel Radcliffe in Equus at the Gielgud Theatre; the Lindy Hop extravaganza for Ray Davies’ Meltdown festival at the Royal Festival Hall; presenting work at the Queen Elizabeth Hall and Sadlers Wells and collaborations at the Young Vic and more recently Movement Director on Pia Furtado’s production of Titus Andronicus in association with Bold Tendancies.
His diverse background in dance culminates in expressive, engaging and rhythmically driven work rooted in a blend of Classic Jazz dance forms, Breakin', Capoeira and Contact Improvisation. He believes dance should be challenging, accessible and fun to experience and observe, and aims to highlight the relevance of heritage, community, change and our individual uniqueness.
